¡Presentamos el track de PyCon Charlas!

Nos alegra anunciar el primer programa de la "Hatchery" (incubadora) en la historia de la PyCon: “PyCon Charlas”. PyCon Charlas será un día entero con un track de charlas en español abierto a toda la comunidad que tendrá lugar en la PyCon US.

¿Por qué estamos tan emocionados? Porque será el primer evento dentro del nuevo programa de "Hatchery"(incubación) que ha sido creado para apoyar y dar un espacio a la comunidad para presentar nuevos eventos dentro de la PyCon. Además será el primer track de charlas de la PyCon US que se dará en un lenguaje diferente al inglés.
Un porcentaje significativo de la población estadounidense, más del 12%, habla español y las comunidades hispanohablantes de python en America Latina y Europa están creciendo rápidamente con una gran aceptación en conferencias y reuniones. PyCon Charlas dará visibilidad a los pythonistas hispanohablantes dándoles un espacio en la PyCon más grande del mundo para dar y recibir charlas en español.
Todo el mundo está invitado a unirse a nosotros en las PyCon Charlas el viernes 11 de mayo (primer día de la conferencia). Aún estamos planeando los detalles pero el horario de las charlas coincidirá con el de la conferencia principal y el track se situará cerca, en el recinto principal de la PyCon. ¡Esto significa que puedes pasarte a ver alguna charla o quedarte todo el día! ¡Vamos a pasarlo genial!
Además, si hablas español, ¿por qué no envías una propuesta de charla? Si lo hablas como segundo, tercero o veinteavo idioma, por favor no dudes en participar. El periodo de propuestas se abrirá el primerouno de febrero así que entra en este link para ver más información sobre cómo enviar tu propuesta.
Si no te sientes cómodo con dar una charla o solo hablas un poquito de español pero quieres mejorar ¿Qué mejor forma que asistiendo una una charla sobre python en español? Normalmente las charlas técnicas son más fáciles de seguir para los principiantes que una conversación.

Introducing the PyCon Charlas Track!

We are excited to announce the first hatchery program in the history of PyCon: “PyCon Charlas”. PyCon Charlas ("charla" is the Spanish word for conference "talk") will be a full day track of Python talks en Español at PyCon US and open to the entire Python community.


Why are we excited? Because the this will be the first event in PyCon's new hatchery program, which is built to provide support and space for the community to introduce new events to PyCon. It will also be the first time a track of talks at PyCon US has been given in a language other than English.
A significant percentage of the U.S. population (12%+) speak Spanish, and Spanish speaking Python communities in Latin America and Europe are growing rapidly with booming attendance at conferences and meetups. PyCon Charlas will showcase Spanish speaking Pythonistas by giving them space at the world's largest PyCon to give and hear talks in Spanish.
Everyone is invited to join us at Pycon Charlas on Friday May 11th (the first day of the main PyCon conference). We're still planning the details, but the schedule of talks will match the main conference schedule and the track will be hosted close by in the main PyCon venue. That means you can pop over to catch a single talk or stay for the entire day! It's all good!
If you can speak Spanish, why not submit a proposal for a charla? If you speak Spanish as a second, third or twelfth language, please do not hesitate to participate! The call for proposals opens the 1st of February, so head over to this link for further information on how to submit your proposal.
If you don’t feel comfortable proposing a talk, or you only speak Spanish “un poquito” but would like to improve, what better way to practice than attending a talk about Python in Spanish! Technical talks are often easier for beginners to follow than conversation.
Please feel free to get in touch with the PyCon Charlas team either via our twitter or our Facebook page.

Updated refund policy for Attendees and Financial Aid recipients traveling to PyCon internationally

International travel to the United States has become a greater risk for many in our community. In light of current conditions, PyCon is providing additional support for international travelers. If you are travelling internationally to PyCon, take note of the following information. Financial Aid applicants should take note of additional information specific to that process in the second section. For All International Travellers to PyCon In order to better assist our international community, we have extended the following clauses from the 2017 refund policy for Financial Aid recipients to our refund policy for all attendees of PyCon:  If despite holding a visa you are denied entry upon arrival to the United States, then after you pursue and receive whatever refund your airline might be able to offer, PyCon wants to send you enough money to cover the rest of the cost of your airfare. You will need to document that you indeed arrived in the United States and were denied entry. If despite…

PyWebOff

This was an interesting talk by Michelle Levesque. She wanted to write a Python webapp and went to get one for her project. Surely, there is one available.

Actually... there isn't one. Kinda too bad. There are about 40 instead. Then she faced the dilemma of "which to choose?" And that's when she started the "web-off". Have a big comparison among some of the big players to see what works best.

The talk briefly described four of the seven approaches that she is looking at. She has more details on the results so far, along with a blog of results as she goes.

Very interesting talk. Personally, I don't use any of those as they generally mix the HTML output and the Python code too much.
